Chrissie and Jeremy have spent a great deal of time waiting—for news of their baby daughter’s post-operation recovery, for weekly scans to show that her tumour is gone, for forty-five-second updates from Dr. Andre Malloy, their brilliant but arrogant pediatric neuro-oncologist. The hospital waiting room has become a second home where they struggle as parents and as a couple, confronting a roller coaster of hope and despair and a crisis of decision-making. Just beyond the waiting room, Dr. Malloy faces his own medical dilemma as he attempts to treat himself for a brain condition.
